Britney Spears files for restraining order against Sam Lufti

Britney Spears is trying to move forward and is taking legal action to do so. You go girl.

Attorneys for Spears are requesting a temporary restraining order against ex-manager Sam Lutfi on Tuesday, The Blast reported. In the filing, the 37-year-old pop star is requesting protection for herself, as well as her two sons, her father, Jamie Spears, and mother, Lynne Spears.

The request comes about two weeks after Spears was released from a mental health facility.

In the documents, Britney and her family claim Lutfi has been sending harassing and threatening texts and tweets to them. They also claim Lutfi’s actions have caused “severe mental trauma” while interfering with Britney’s life, which we know is already toxic enough. No pun intended.
